Leigh & I had the good fortune to join in with the wonderful Griffith family for Thanksgiving. They are my brother's friends & have warmly opened up their home to us for quite a few years - including my parents, & Leigh's folks when they were alive. . I brought along a Tofurky, Greek bread, chestnut rice stuffing, pumpkin pie & rolls -
The following day we went to a 60th birthday party for a close family friend - it was really nice, except for trying to find a park space in Ann Arbor. The party took place at http://www.neutral-zone.org/ ~ a Teen Center . There was a lot of interesting painting & graffiti all around -
Our newest family member (Gigi - German Shepherd) is starting to get more comfortable. After much nagging urging, Leigh & his brother Robert set up Sally's crate in the living room. Gigi wasn't exactly housebroken & a bit food insecure, so she was always getting into stuff & pooping/peeing on the rug. Things have gone much more smoothly since she's been in the crate. She seems to find comfort there.
Dec 4th will be Vamps Live in CA - & then in NYC
I don't have the stamina for a general admission Vamps live - if only I had known about the Pre-Workout Amplifier HYDE supplement:
when you mentioned the b-day party being the friend's 60th, it suddenly hit me that folks turning 60 are no longer Dad's generation but mine! haha, in fact it's just a year and a half away for me. lol i always forget things like that. ^v^
hopefully Gigi will settle on in now that she has a better sense of security. sometimes too much space and freedom can be so un-nerving for animals and humans alike. ^^
i'd love to see the lads again, but i know i don't have the stamina to even stand-up for that period of time, much less jump around, dance and maintain my space in the crowd. i doubt even "the Pre-Workout Amplifier HYDE supplement" would do the trick. XD heh, wish i looked and felt as healthy as i did when my icon photo was made in 2009. ah well... :3
i feel the same, we've both been through some pretty rough spots these last few years. >.< we definitely need a healthy year soon.
i hate feeling like i'm in worse shape than my 80 year old father, but that's really about how it is. when my 4 year old grand-daughter, Maddie, asked me to get in the floor to play dolls with her Saturday, i couldn't because i hurt too badly and knew i couldn't get back up. lol now i know how my mom felt when my brother's kids were little.
